that lltere was only one man in the

OLIii:iY?. Ind., Jan. 12.
Charles F. Talkington. former super
intendent of the Bartholomew coun
ty schools find now superintendent of
the penal farm, delivered an address
he fore the Bartholomew county
teachers' institute and described the
workings of the state farm. He said
Z() more men are needed there to
carry on the 'work.

nearly all prisoners at the penal
farm are doinK well, that every man

radically wnm? with him Kains an
avira'-;e of 10 pounds the first month
he works on the farm.
The penal farm is not jet self-sustaining
and will not he for a few
years, the superintendent says, but
he asserts it would come nearer be-in-r
self-sustaining at the present
time if more money had heen pro
ided to develop the natural re
sources of the place. He says a hig
supply of lime stone is on the farm
and 10 carloads of this could be
shipped daily if the farm officials
had the facilities for getting out the
stone and loading it.
Produce Stored for Winter.
A Kreut deal of farm and garden
produce was raised on the farm last
summer and stored for winter use.
Counting the farm's own products at
the present market value, Mr. Talk
ington said, the state is paying hut
10 cents a day for each prisoner's
food. He points out that the county
sheriffs are allowed 4 0 cents a day for
feeding jail prisoners. The pay roll
at the farm amounts to $40 a day
now, but even with that expense the
superintendent ligures that prisoners
are being kept at the state farm
more cheaply than they could be
nattered in the county jails. How
ever, this does not apply to the pris- i
oner who grets a sentence of but a
few days. It does not pay to send a ! eration, the two hinds, passive and

Take Tilde In Work.
Many of the prisoners take great
pride in their work, Mr. Talkington
says. One gang is digging a conduit
through the farm, another is making
a three-mile railroad grade, and
smaller gangs are doing various jobs
about the place. One small gang of
negroes has been building a wire
fence, and this gang has not been
under surveillance except that of a
crippled negro, who is known as the
boss of the men.
